Thank you
Danny, did you even try Venkat's solution.

I tried it and it works like a charm, guess you would like to read it again:

Suppose you have 1/1/09 in cell A1,
Then use cell B1 to input this formula: =TEXT(A1,"mmm") .
If you want the full monthname instead of 3 letters add another m,
like this =TEXT(A1,"mmmm") .

Hope it's clear now.

Best regards,

Thank you, Trowa 215

i m trying to convert my date into month text it shows whole formula in the cell where the formula typed,

my date format is:

can you plz explain will this formula work on this type of date format?
Perfect! Thanks.
its simple, u've to combine d-elecminate function in excel... i.e first select colmun containg the date as, the press ctrl+d+e, this will open a window use d-elimiate and in other check box use "/". This will separate date into three columns, convert first colum into number, them use & to replace date with month column.
Once all done convert again number into date column.. :)
Thank you
